The Ssethregoran Empire


The reptilian peoples known as ssethrics once dominated all that lived throughout the continent and beyond. From atop the Coiled Throne of Yahssremore, in what is now the First City in the Blessed Lands, they enslaved or exterminated numerous lesser races during the Extinction Wars and became masters of all they surveyed. This dominance was squandered by arrogance and centuries of decadence, after which the ssethrics found themselves overthrown by their own creations and sent fleeing for their lives, far into the swamps and jungles of the south. Now, in the fetid marshes of the Kraldjur Morass live their descendants in the Ssethregoran Empire. Fighting constant wars against the Malfelan elorii  and the Altherian Republic, the ssethric races seek to return to their rightful place as the rulers of Known Lands.


Within these pages you will find:

  • The history of the oldest empire in the history of Arcanis – including the secret history about the world of Arcanis that soft-hides were never meant to know.
  • A horde of monstrous reptilian adversaries such as the batrachian hylis, aquatic pleisaurans, cunning ssanu, and full details on the savage ss’ressen egg clutches.
  • Details on ssethric sorcery including new spells, runes, and biomancy, the unique living magical technology of the empire.
  • Extensive geographic information about the lands occupied by the Ssethregoran Empire, from tropical rainforests to murky swamps and the mysterious underground caverns known as the Endless Dark.
  • Two complete ssethric pantheons of ancient and terrible gods, including Kassegore the Great Devourer, Yig the Life-Bringer, Jeggal Sag, the Lord of Drakes, Wantiir, the ssethric Death God, and the Varn Pantheon of world destroying deities.
  • A detailed study of the history and culture of the Pariah Clutches – the Black Talons, Ghost Scale, and Ashen Hide ss’ressen.
  • Details on the three Houses of the Naga and their other-worldly overlords, the mysterious varn.
  • New Backgrounds, Paths, Talents, and Spells.
  • A Bestiary detailing some of the bizarre and dangerous creatures that inhabit the region.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
